I received a lovely email from a reader yesterday asking whether I know of any feminist fertility health blogs or forums or websites and I don’t … do you? She is trying to conceive and wants health information from a feminist perspective.
I would recommend the book, Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler which taught me so, so, so much about my own body and I can’t believe that a woman can to the age of thirty, like I did, without already knowing all that stuff about her menstrual cycle. And I don’t know how far along the ‘trying to conceive’ path this reader is but I do know that A Little Pregnant is totally feminist and that she has a wonderful writing style and a blog with lots of archives about fertility problems and overcoming them so I would totally recommend her if she’s looking for that perspective.
Readers, do you have some other suggestions?
